The Clipper Hudson Bay 50 is a striking looking motor yacht, perfect for a short day trip or extened family cruises. Great use of space and clever layout make the HB50 a stand out in this size range.

Plan Sea is an excellent example of the HB50, she is a three cabin, galley aft layout and in superb condition throughout. The current owners have cruised the east coast of Australia and now use the boat almost exclusively on the Gippsland Lakes. Plan Sea is moored on a private marina berth at the owners residence and therefore she is extremely well maintained by a fastidious owner.

All deck equipment, rails, fairleads, cleats are high quality Stainless Steel. The all-around Stainless bow rail is mounted on an oiled teak cap rail.
The swim platform extends another few metres aft of the transom, an exceptional extension to the already large entertaining deck, as well as providing an excellent tender storage platform. Currently the hydraulic tender lift/ swim platform is not operational, and a tender davit has been installed.

Cockpit: The Teak laid to cockpit is a great space providing excellent protection from the weather in most conditions. The clever design of the cabin top extends well aft to create a mostly covered cockpit. A fabric “Euro Awning” with Stainless steel uprights to support it aft, extends beyond the aft seating group for additional protection. The area boasts ample seating, clever cockpit table that folds over to extend to sit 8 people for dinner, Kenyon BBQ (half grill, half plate), Waco fridge/freezer, loads of storage and access to the enormous swim platform.

The raised saloon and galley is a great space, flowing well to the cockpit via stainless steel framed sliding door, and Hopper upward swinging galley window, essentially opening the main thoroughfare for great access and connection. Being two steps higher helps with over all vision, especially for the skipper at the helm station to starboard. The cabin is finished with Afromosia timber finish, headlining panels finished in cream vinyl and leather sofas.
The salon features a U-shaped dinette which is forward to port. A great place to lounge, have a meal or relax as a passenger whilst underway. There is also a comfortable sofa aft of the helm station alongside the galley. The opening skylight is another great feature, letting in suitable natural light when required, and opens electrically. There is a blind and a fly screen.
The main cabin is forward and is very large with an island bed. The finish is as per the rest of the interior and boasts great natural light from port holes and overhead hatches. This cabin features its own ensuite with enclosed shower, electric F/W flush Tecma toilet and ample storage. The port cabin is a superb space, complimented by the large hull windows. The cabin has direct access to the head with enclosed shower, has excellent storage and queen size bed. The starboard cabin is narrower and set up as a bunk cabin. This cabin also features the large hull windows, providing excellent light and feeling of proximity to the water. All cabins, including the main saloon benefit from indirect and overhead LED lighting, air conditioning, carpet, and suitable ports/ hatches for natural air flow.
